It was 110 apparently! Fantastic turn-out and Matthew gave a great talk :D

Take home messages for those who missed it:
-No picture of a leopard is too old (historical sightings can be really important)
-No picture is too dark or blurry or far away to be worth sending: it's amazing what can be ID'd!
-There's a new logo for the project! Hope Astromatt will post it on here :wink:

Some photos from the talk here:

Unfortunately I missed AstroMatt's talk but heard all about it! :thumbs_up: :clap: :clap:
And I have seen the great new logo for the project :dance: - I believe a BIG thank you must go to Koru for designing it! :clap: :clap: (Fantastic work Susie!)

Ok AstroMatt, how about posting it! :whistle: :pray:

Thanks for the comments RichardJ, Koru and Wanderw. :thumbs_up:

It was a really fun talk to give and i really think a lot of people will be recruited to the project.
Wanderw is 100% correct when she says there is a new project logo and thanks must go to Susie (Koru) for designing it :k

I hope you all like it....can you see who it is??

I wanted to share a couple of my photo's from the same day as Katja's. I think this one was also near Urikaruus so I guess its the same Leopard.

Hi katanga! Thanks for posting your sighting! :thumbs_up: Tshidi it is! :dance:
If you can, please fill in the 'Report a Sighting' form in the link at the bottom of the post - AstroMatt needs the details for the project, even if it was on the same day. Many thanks! :D

Yes, same day, same leopard. :thumbs_up:
He was under the tree almost all day but came down to the road just before it was time to return to Urikaruus.

Katja

that's correct. You may recall we spoke as we were also staying at Urikaruus at the time.

Shame we missed the real close ups - the leopard came down a few minutes after I went back to camp.

I have filled out the sightings detail and am sending the photos too.

thanks
